You could say that Parmalee succeeded in getting attention with their first single. The song cracked the top 40 on the charts and certainly got the band attention – both good and bad.
Sometimes that’s all it takes to break through because now the band is ready for their next single and this time it sounds a little more radio-friendly. The mainstream country world should like this one.
Carolina – Parmalee
The song is about a guy that’s been on the road. He’s gone from his home and missing the girl he had to leave. He travels through the various states and something always reminds him of her and the home he has to leave.
These songs are always interesting. The songs are about living on the road, which most of the country audience can’t really relate to. There are a few jobs like truck drivers or business people or pilots and the service members that can relate, but for those of working nine to five we’re home with the one we love.
But the interesting thing is these love songs do well. As listeners we find a way to put ourselves in the story of the song. Even when we’re away from someone we love for just a short period we miss them and we relate to the emotion in the song.
That’s what this song is about. It has a great melody with catchy hooks. That’s why this song has a chance to win on the charts. People need something catchy and the fact that it’s a ballad should give it a great chance at radio.
